Two men attempting to aid a crime victim were assaulted and bitten at Westfield mall, according to police. The men were trying to chase down a pair of alleged purse snatchers. The suspects, who may be responsible for a series of similar incidents, got away.
According to reports, a woman was sitting at Panera Bread when she felt someone move her purse, which was hanging on the back of her chair. The woman turned and saw that her purse had been unzipped and her wallet was open.
